LOL let your fingers do the walking! Do you know if those square collets fit both cold and hot rolled square stock?

Ted,

Not square and hex collets, square and hex collet blocks. They allow you to machine squares, hexes or parallel sides on round stock, when the blocks are used in milling machine vise. These use standard ER 32 style collets. Similar to the collet block sets sold for the 5C series of collets.

I see I missed the block part, Those will come in handy, no need for a indexing head, I have t Syoz 25 collets.

I spent the last 2-3 hours, with a bright light, a pick, razor knife, tiny needle nose pliers and a stack of business cards, the set about cleaning every slot in all of the ER 32 collets. The amount of swarf, slivers and slime that came out was amazing. I cleaned all the collets with brake clean, cleaned the slots, did an aggressive bout of high pressure air cleaning, then a shot of rust preservative, then back into the little plastic bag and the collet sleeve.

Good idea. I will do the same when mine get there.

Welp, the finishing pieces of my EBay order arrived, the two ER 32 wrenches (4 point style), showed up this afternoon. Damn!! I’m ready now!!.

So now I’m down to 4 pendings orders, a carbide insert order from ISI Direct, a threading tool from VME, a small order from LMS and a vise parts order from Shars.

Maybe 4 pending is wrong, I forgot about the ER 32 collet blocks and ball bearing nuts.

I have a possible large Korean end mill purchase in the works.

I’m wondering if I can claim some of the machine tools as dependents, on my taxes.

Got my ER32 ball bearing nut today, and my 4 point wrench. Very nice machining work on the nut. Threads are very smooth. Is the tiny hole on the bottom side side of the nut to lube the bearing?

Took a needle and found the tiny hole does not go through to the ball bearings. So oiled by turning the inner collar with oil at the seam. It did go down through the gap between the two pieces and ran smoother.
